Ready to Teach, Ready to Learn
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. "We report directly to Parliament and we are independent and impartial. We inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
Every week, we carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England, and publish the results on our website. To find an inspection report, go to the Find an inspection report page. We work with providers which are not yet good to promote their improvement, monitoring their progress and sharing with them the best practice we find". -
Following my visit to the school on 18 October 2018, I write on behalf of Her
Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education, Children’s Services and Skills to report the
inspection findings. The visit was the first short inspection carried out since the
school was judged to be good in December 2014.
This school continues to be good.

‘Pupils’ behaviour is excellent’
‘Pupils are making better progress across all subjects and Key Stages’
‘Governors share leaders’ ambitious vision for the school’
‘There is a strong vision of safeguarding throughout the school’

The data provides a snapshot of school performance at Key Stages 1,and 2. It can be used by school governors and by members of the public to check the performance of the school in which they are interested.
The data complements the Ofsted school inspection report by providing an analysis of school performance over a three-year period.
